“Jerkism” is unavoidable because people are naturally selfish—they look out for themselves to the detriment of others. To help readers deal with the selfish jerks (and even the jerk-like tendencies in themselves), Dr. Meier offers advice on a variety of topics, including taking control of negative cycles, learning how to forgive, and understanding how the past influences the present.
Dr. Paul Meier takes a look at how selfish humans are. Through light hearted episodes, Dr. Meier sheds light on how individuals act as jerks, how to become aware of manipulation, and identifying our own “jerk” tendencies. "Don't Let Jerks Get the Best of You " provides laughs while at the same time showing ways to take control of our lives and build relationships with confidence, trust, and joy.
